Abstract: In situ injection molding of continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites is challenged by unbalanced dual-scale infiltration flow due to the pronounced capillary effect. In this paper, a general and efficient approach was proposed for dual-scale infiltration flow balancing based on numerical simulation. Specifically, Stokes and Brinkman equations were used to describe the infiltration flow in inter- and intra-fiber bundles. In particular, capillary pressure drop was integrated in the Brinkmann equatio… Show more
